Done lipid profile. Is it correct? Difficulty breathing, mood swings. Taking medicine for BP

I am 38 yrs. I got my lipid profile without fasting today. Report says Total cholesterol 147 mg/dl, HDL 50 mg/dl and triglycerides 397 mg/dl. LDL and VLDL he has not written citing reason for increased triglycerides. I am taking Amlong H tablet for BP for last 03 years on prescription of a cardiologist Escort Hospital Delhi and my BP is under control i.e 80-90/125-140. I underwent TMT, ECG in Escord Hospital 03 years back but I was ruled out for Heart disease. My check up at Escort Hospital was because I was getting sleepmania in sleep ( in sleep suffocation used to be felt for 5 to 10 seconds and could wake after some inner struggle). I had told this to Cardiologist. But he ruled out heart problem after TMT, Lipid, 02 03 more test for heart. Thereafter, I am regulary doing exercise, running, doing yoga alternatively. But normally I have faced a lot of job and family stress in the past. Now stress is decreasing. Whether lipid profile test without fasting is correct as i doubt last 3 year my triglycerides was 314, 190 and 170 respectively but done in fasting. Should i go for lipid profile in fasting again, or what to do to reduce triglycerides. I exercise regularly, try to walk as much as possible, take mung sprout, fruit, vegetable, green vegetable, take non-veg but chiken normally once or twice a week and mutton rarely once in month or two months. I do sedentary work, For some months I am feeling the following problems While preparing to sleep, momentary breathing stoppage i feel , it happens normally when i prepare to sleep facing my face to ceiling, it happens only in a preparatory stage for sleeping not in sleep, earlier in sleepomania it happened in the middle of sleep. I feel some times in left there is sum sparkling sound. I felt it earlier but when i use to sit or there is gas problem, it will happen, if i run, no problem, if i walk no problem. I am pretty sure that it is due to gas problem but some times it disturbs me. Some time swing of mood happens, and a feeling that I am taking medicine for BP, it means i am a heart patient. BP and asthama is my family history but no heart attack. Totay I am astonished by the triglycerides level, whether it is correct without fasting.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Only HDL cholesterol levels can be measured in non fasting state.
For rest of lipid profile,one should be in fasting state.
So please get your lipid profile in fasting state for accurate estimation of triglycerides level.
You should have your triglyceride levels below 150.
For reduction of triglycerides 
You must maintain your weight in healthy limits
Reduce sugar and fats in your diet
Stop colas and alcohol
Control of diabetes and hypothyroidism,if present
Regular exercises
Consume more green vegetables and fresh fruits.
I hope it helps.
